With both the classic Spenser series and the more recent Jesse Stone novels, Robert B. Parker's spare prose and tight storytelling have earned him critical praise and popular success. In Family Honor, he creates an entirely new character - young, smart, and for the first time, female. Her name is Sunny Randall, a former cop turned Boston P.I.

Hired by a wealthy family to locate their teenage daughter, Sunny soon finds herself the bodyguard for a difficult teenager who refuses to return to her family. But before long, Sunny is facing greater problems than she ever imagined - including a criminal conspiracy that reaches to the top of the state government. Download and start listening now!

    " My ranking might have differed if I read the actual book rather than listening to the audio version. The audio book has terrible production that proved distracting. The book came out in 1999. Today's technology would change the way the story plays out. It was striking how often I thought "use a cell phone." "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kit | 2/15/2014

    " Seemed at first to be a lady version of the Spenser novel Early Autumn, in the way the worldly detective schools the sullen and colorless teen, but that description sells it short. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sue | 2/14/2014

    " Just finished this - my first Robert B. Parker book. Quick, easy read, likable characters, good story. I'm ready for the next in the Sunny Randall series! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 2/9/2014

    " This book was published 10 years ago, and is the first Robert B. Parker novel about Boston PI Sonia (Sunny) Randall. Ms Randall is a female Spenser in many respects, but to this fan of Parker's earlier work, that's not a bad thing. She's tough but vulnerable, loves her dog and her ex-husband, and blows a bad guy away with a shotgun. What's not to like? Recommended. "

    " Enjoyed this book very much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 liza | 1/29/2014

    " robert parker is a steady choice for a good mystery read. his main character, sunny, is an ex-cop turned private detective. her character is life-like and the story was fast-paced and just enough different from all the rest to make it worth reading. i hear he's written a few with sunny the p.i. so i'm going to hunt them up and read 'em. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 1/18/2014

    " I really liked the heroine, but I R-rated the novel for language and sexual content. You should know, although I'm pretty prude, this novel is graphic by most people's standards. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary | 1/15/2014

    " This first book in the Sunny Randall series was a hard to put down read. Sunny Randall is a Boston P.I. and former cop, a college graduate, an aspiring painter, a divorcee, and the owner of a miniature bull terrier named Rosie. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 12/19/2013

    " A new addition to Robert B Parker's stable of PIs. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janine | 11/21/2013

    " If someone hadn't given me a whole armload of Robert Parker books (in hardcover!), I never would've picked one up. This one has a really sinister family, but Sunny and her friends and of course her dog are really likeable characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa Harris | 10/8/2013

    " Good book quick easy read, I read it in one day. I loved the Boston references. Same author writes Jesse Stone mysteries and Spencer (for hire) as in the 80's TV series based in Boston about a private eye. Enjoyed the book will probably read a few more by same author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe Westfall | 10/2/2013

    " good read, Sunny Randall saves a teenage runaway from her past and future. Sunny's relationships with the men in her life play a big part in this book. Lots of big bad thugs in this book. Plenty of action. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 9/16/2013

    " A fast-paced and entertaining read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Terri | 8/7/2013

    " Since I like the Jesse Stone series, thought I'd try another one by this author. I like the Stone series better, but maybe that is because of Tom Selleck LOL. I will defnitely try another one. It had enough to keep you guessing on the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John Senner | 7/1/2013

    " Robert Parker tries out a female alter-ego. Not as convincing as Spencer. But a typical mystery with the interesting detective and the weird villians. Just what we wanted on a cloudy day after Thanksgiving. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 2/13/2013

    " Ron - 5 stars; Nancy - 4 stars "

    " First Robert Parker book and I enjoyed it. Quick easy read, interesting plot. Sunny Randall is a bad ass. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juanita | 1/2/2013

    " A female version of Spencer! Looking forward to yet another Parker series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Darla | 12/3/2012

    " Parker is a well known mystery writer. This is the first in a new series featuring Sunny Randall. I'll definately be reading the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhod | 11/17/2012

    " I clearly like Parker. I have been wanting to read this book - the first of the Sunny Randall series. Sunny is pretty, cute, and not the kick-butt type that is featured by some authors - like Patterson's Lindsey Boxer who is fun to read. She uses her smarts and wiles to get the job done. "

    " I enjoyed this first in a new series, it has likable characters and a good story. Will read more, I'm sure. "

    " first of the Sunny Randall series "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sandi | 8/24/2011

    " First in the Sunny Randall series. I really love Parker. Sunny is a female Spenser saying the same lines almost verbatim. I still love it. I cant believe he just died!!!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Quinn | 8/15/2011

    " "Family Honor" lacks any real action or mystery. I felt that the book dragged a little too much to be considered a good read. Sunny Randall is a tough female character but she is predictable and not really interesting. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 6/16/2011

    " Fun read; I enjoyed the female heroine's witty and cunning attitude. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Erika | 3/25/2011

    " I should re-read this book and the others in the series. My initial recollection is that this series' protagonist was the weakest of his characters. But I still love RBP! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie | 2/5/2011

    " I didn't enjoy as much as I did the Jesse Stone series "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Vivian | 8/12/2010

    " I hadn't read a Parker novel since the 90's, but instead of revisiting the Spenscer books, I started with his Jesse Stone series and have now moved on to Sunny Randall. This one was a fast, fun, entertaining read. I've already started the second in the series. "

    " Sunny Randall series, the first book sets up the main character and delivers an interesting cast of characters.
    Parker seems to repeat ideas between his series. Lets just say that Sunny and Jesse Stone have a lot in common besides solving murders. No, she is not a lush. "
